KARIN BJORK, 18 19 20 21 22 RELATED CASE ORDER COUNTY OF PLACER THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, 16 17 No. 2:13-cv-01616 MCE-EFB No. 2:14-cv-01983 TLN-EFB Plaintiff, v. COUNTY OF PLACER THE DISTRICT ATTORNEY’S OFFICE, Defendant. 23 The Court has received the Notice of Related Case filed on September 9, 2014. 24 Examination of the above-entitled civil actions reveals that these actions are 25 related within the meaning of Local Rule 123(a) (E.D. Cal. 1997). The actions involve 26 many of the same defendants and are based on the same or similar claims, the same 27 property transaction or event, similar questions of fact and the same questions of law, 28 and would therefore entail a substantial duplication of labor if heard by different judges. 1 1 Accordingly, the assignment of the matters to the same judge is likely to effect a 2 substantial savings of judicial effort and is also likely to be convenient for the parties. 3 The parties should be aware that relating the cases under Local Rule 123 merely 4 has the result that both actions are assigned to the same judge; no consolidation of the 5 action is effected. Under the regular practice of this court, related cases are generally 6 assigned to the district judge and magistrate judge to whom the first filed action was 7 assigned. 8 IT IS THEREFORE ORDERED that the action denominated 2:14-cv-01983 TLN- 9 EFB, Karin Bjork v. County of Placer The District Attorney’s Office. is reassigned to Chief 10 Judge Morrison C. England, Jr. and Magistrate Judge Edmund F. Brennan for all further 11 proceedings, and any dates currently set in this reassigned case only are hereby 12 VACATED. The Clerk of the Court is to issue an Order Requiring Joint Status Report. 13 Henceforth, the caption on documents filed in the reassigned case shall be shown as 14 2:14-cv-01983-MCE-EFB. 15 16 IT IS FURTHER ORDERED that the Clerk of the Court make appropriate adjustment in the assignment of civil cases to compensate for this reassignment. 17 IT IS SO ORDERED. 18 Dated: September 12, 2014 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 2
